When did you last see a band from Lafayette, Louisiana, perform in Lafayette, Indiana? Very possibly it was the Pine Leaf Boys at LBC in 2015. Their mix of Cajun tunes and early rock n roll (Louisianans call it call Swamp Pop) shook the room—shook our spirits. There’s a PINE LEAF BOY in The Revelers. There are even more RED STICK RAMBLERS in The Revelers. If you saw the RSRs at LBC in 2008, it very possibly added years to your life. Cajun bands bring the spirit. Dance music played with zip and dexterity.  The Revelers play a gumbo of Cajun, Swamp Pop, country, blues, zydeco, Western Swing, and Tex-Mex. They call it Louisiana Jukebox Music.

a masterful mix of Cajun, zydeco, and ‘50s inflected swamp rock… presented by a band of musicians playing at the top of their game.”  popmatters.com
 
“Whipsmart songwriting, outrageous musical chops, and cutting-edge production have made this record a fixture on my stereo. I give this my highest possible recommendation.”
Blake Leyh, Music Supervisor, HBO’s Treme

“ …smart, swinging and winningly strange… a fairly fantastical free-wheeling show full of memorable tunes…”   Philadelphia Inquirer
 
 “Chandler Travis cannot do anything with an entirely straight face; throughout his career, his excursions in bar band rock & roll, new wave-influenced power pop, and eclectic jazz-influenced big band music have been delivered with a knowing wink and a sly sense of the absurd.”  Allmusic.com
 
Since they are presently a 9-piece band, CTP rarely hits the road to serenade the hinterlands. If you saw their 2004 FoB show you know that CTP is zany and musically inspired. Part of the fun is that they incorporate so many diverse musical genres—all played with an element of silliness. It’ll put a quiver in your legs and a big grin on your face.
